House Immigration Subcommittee approves EB recapture and RN/PT bills

The House Immigration subcommittee approved two key employment immigration related bills. The first would allow for the "recapture" of about 500,000 unused visa numbers from previous years, that were not allocated due to processing delays. This would result in eliminating most if not all of the employment based quota backlogs. The second bill would provide for up to 20,000 green cards for RN's and Physical Therapists. Congress has now adjourned for their August recess. Hopefully, these bills will be passed when it returns.
